Big Complicated Machines


I have spent many hours thinking of an escape route through the lower peninsula of Michigan in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse or just a general breakdown of society. I believe that my plans should include this custom Tucker snow vehicle with custom armor. I mean, how incredibly awesome is this?

    This will actually tie into an article I'm working on for next week… stay tuned, faithful readers!

    You live in Canada so you go somewhere populated when a zombie outbreak happens? Head north!

    EDIT: Now that I have read who wrote this one, I retract my statement but my sentiment stands.

  • If this were steam powered I think it would be the official Atomic Toasters Family Truckster.

      If it were powered by steam somebody would be getting out to push after mile 20-25 at best… That's if the family can endure the racking 110-150 degree heat at a motley 5-10mph.

          I'd also be okay with a diesel turbine powerplant of some sort for the Family Truckster…

  • You need to be smarter than the zombies who oppose you. If they cotton on to the idea that a 3' deep mud puddle will stop you in your tracks you're sunk. It might be a week or so, but soon you'll start to think about eating the zombies.

    Add a rotor from a Sikorsky Skycrane and the ancillary controls and I'll take two, please.

      I've driven a Tucker SnowCat (…actually not sure if it was a genuine Tucker, or a knockoff. For some reason I think it was an ancient Bombardier…), and if a mud pit could stop one, it would be one hell of a mud pit. You'd be totally safe in there from zombies until you ran out of supplies, or until enough of them drown in the muck that you could drive out over top of them.

    I was thinking that would be good for my escape route. Through the upper peninsula of Michigan and into Canada.
